As Covid continues to shape our landscape, the Parking and Transportation team remains focused on providing you with the best experience possible despite a variety of shifting dynamics. We will continue to share Covid-related information on this page and will update as needed.

Updated July 2021

Danforth Campus Parking

At this time, the visitor parking rate in all of the garages remains reduced by 50 percent. This adjusted rate also pertains to Passport Parking spaces. No permit is required for either option.

  • ParkSmart: A majority of ParkSmart permit holders have shifted from West Campus to the South 40. The program is expected to return to West Campus at the start of the FY22 permit year.
  • Garage Parking: Individuals can pull a ticket at any of the garages on the Danforth Campus (the DUC, East End, Millbrook, and Snow Way), park in a visitor-designated space, and pay upon exit at one of the pay stations or exit lanes. Payment must be via credit card.
  • Passport Parking: Those using Passport Parking can register and pay via the Passport Parking app in designated Passport Parking spaces on the South 40, and West and North Campuses.

Parking and Transportation Services Applications and Forms

To adhere with social distancing recommendations, a variety of parking- and transportation-related requests can be managed online. Review the forms currently available.

Shuttle Services

All WashU campus shuttle services follow strict Covid-19 protocols, including:

  • A 50-percent reduction in ridership, with 10 passengers allowed per bus and five passengers allowed in each van.
  • One passenger will be permitted in each seat.
  • Masks are required for all passengers and drivers, and drivers will have extra masks on-hand for those in need.
  • Deep and frequent cleanings will be performed every morning and approximately every three hours during each shift.
  • In the event that a COVID-19-positive passenger rides on a shuttle, the vehicle will be removed from the route for extensive cleaning and remain offline for a period of 24 hours.
